Gitzo GT3542L Mountaineer Series 3 4-Section Long Carbon Tripod
Gitzo GT3542L Long Mountaineer Tripod
Series 3 is the most rigid in the Mountaineer range. Scaled for professional equipment, including medium format cameras and DSLRs with 300mm lens (400mm maximum), the Carbon eXact tubes and new design features of Series 3 Mountaineer tripods offer increased rigidity yet reduced weight.
New Mountaineer tripods maintain the lightweight characteristics of preceding Carbon 6X models, butare even stiffer, thanks to the fibre composition of our Carbon eXact tubing and tube dimension optimisationsthat include larger diameters of lower leg sections.
New Mountaineer tripods feature G-lock Ultra,a redesigned version of Gitzo’s signature leg lock system G-lock. G-lock Ultra has even more comfortable operation and reduced risk of debris entering the tubesand locking mechanisms. It is fine-tuned for the smaller differences in tube diameter between leg sections ofCarbon eXact tubes, contributing to increased stiffness of the legs.
The Ground Level Set mechanism, which lets the photographer remove the centre column to get the camera closer to the ground, has been completely redesigned for faster operation. A single simple unlocking ring under the column’s upper disc frees the column while keeping the upper disc solidly in place on the tripod, with no need to unscrew and re-fit the upper disc and hook as in previous versions.
